    Dust is a fact of life in the desert. The Nomad Slim really comes in handy for taking care of those tight spaces and keeping them dust free.

    That`s a nice idea. I will look this up on Amazon Germany.
     
  12. Thanks. I promised my wife no more instant online purchases. I have made a few impulse buys due to me spending too much time on this device. So i put it in the cart, maybe she wont notice it when she buys something.

    They have amazing Matte finish guitar cleaner as well! Also handy: I keep an old shave brush in my guitar case.

    Love mine, I use it all the time. Even though we clean our hands before playing, I was surprised at the dirt that comes off. Also helps to keep the pickup covers from oxidizing. Highly Recommend them.

    Good call. I'd much rather support music stores.

    Sweetwater is a fine, well-run business. They truly understand their customer and their market. Many small music stores do it this,p way, but Covid is likely to close a lot of those. Sweetwater is a huge corporation that does it right. They are my first choice for guitars and accessories if I can’t patronize my locals.

    That’s sort of how I do it myself. There are two privately owned stores I check first, whenever I buy anything. If they do not carry whatever it is I am looking for, I check several online sources, Sam Ash, Sweetwater or even Amazon.

    Keeping in mind that driving to Rainbow Guitars is about an 80 mile round trip, I’m not about to drive that far for a $12 item and something so small can’t be shipped economically by a small business, so if it’s not piggybacked onto another order, I’ll just go straight to Amazon. I’m hardly in love with them, but for a person living nearly 40 miles from town, they come in very handy.

    Recently, I bought a Boss Waza Craft CE-2 pedal from LaVonne Music in Savage, MN. They were competitive and gave me excellent service. I definitely recommend doing business with a small, locally owned store, whenever possible.
